Statement of Interest

Clunie Bank is one of the larger houses in Braemar is notable for its use of classical detailing. It has the only example of a Venetian window in the village. Constructed using traditional local materials, particularly granite but also slate and timber, Clunie Bank retains its external appearance without significant alteration, and the footprint of the building remains unchanged since the 2nd Edition OS.

According to a former owner Clunie Bank was built by her great-uncle, Mr Stewart, in the early 19th century. This Mr Stewart was also the father of James Stewart, a Catholic Priest of the parish of Braemar, who lived in the house in the later nineteenth century.
